Default Re: Lift with 35s

Soo what your sayin here i believe is that i can go with just the RCD lift with a 15x8 wheel and the 35s and i should be alright?

And yes, 4.56 is ALOT better than 4.10's with 35's. Not ideal, but it used to be the most common re-gear for 5's ratio. Now it seems the crowd is running 4.88's, myself being one of them.

For what it costs to re-gear, it's not worth passing on the already installed 4.56's to have 4.88's.
I never wanted to be either but if it comes down to it i will plus this truck is my DD and only way of transpertation

yes, you can run 35's with the RCD lift only, hell you could tun 35's with a body lift but they WILL rub, i guarantee it. when i installed my RCD i got almost 6.5 inches of lift in the back and just about 5.5 in the front so i fabbed some tabs for my coil overs to bring the front up to match the back and even with 6.5 inches of lift with 33's on 15X8's i can still get them to rub in the front at full lock. with 35's and just an RCD you will be ripping flares off.
